not, and how can you expect people to invest in us if nobody is talking to each other. >> that's a slippery slope. how do you keep working with people not working for you. you can't criticize the president for going off the farm when they are not working with him. chlt i live in europe, and when i come back, what always surprises me is not that the republicans hate obama, it's so many of my liberal friends hate obama. >> you hangout in the wrong crowds obviously. >> you are right. >> there's a lot of disillusion, and they don't like this guy. he can make the republicans look like fools, and he is doing a good job of that. >> now. >> i think the problem of the white house is everybody looks to the president to solve the problems, and even though they hate congress and republicans more than the white house, and if things go wrong they blame the incumbents, which is the obama administration. i think that's the strategy. >> quickly, congresswoman karen bass of california is going to join us right after this. looking good! you lost some weight. you noticed! these clothes are too big, so

money away put it in the pockets of americans, and don't use it to bail out the banks, and obama is stuck in a point which i think doesn't allow him to make these claims in a way that has credibility. >> i think there is a grain of truth to that broadly, but to follow-up on that on the narrow question of this bill, which they paired down, and did it in bite sized pieces, and it's remarkable to me that this is not something that republicans wants to do. teachers, cops, firefighters, we could fire them and send a lot of people on to unemployment and cobra and all sorts of things that drains the state's coffers anyway, or we can keep them going for $35 million, which is not peanuts, but it is kind of peanuts. >> well, i might consider this as a bigger problem, but it's expensive, and when you are looking at the way the jobs bill is being packaged and presented, it's no surprise that i think you have a few democrats like the montana senator saying this is really a stimulus bill, this is not a jobs bill, and i will not be able to support this, even as a democrat if we go about this as a

economics and policies. and skeptics being deniers is backwards. >> this takes us slightly off topic, and we will circle back to romney, but the cap and trade example is perfect. i agree. opposing cap and trade as a policy does not make you a science denier, and the bigger issue is i am perfectly happy to have people on the show and i have had people on the show who say i don't think cap and trade is cost the benefit at the end of the day, and i think cap and trade is a bad policy and that's great. what i won't tolerate on the show is people who will come on and say there's no scientific consensus on global warming? >> what is the consensus. >> great, you get to stay. >> i think people say -- i will say, people mean that man is changing the planet in such a way like al gore is predicting and it is going to have gigantic sea level rises, we don't know what the climate are going to be on human living. >> that is true. we do not know. but we have a good indication. i will get back to romney. >> here is the thing that frustrates me most. if you are skeptical about religion, you are demonized, if

msnbc pois come. >> that's all for now. i'm chrisman son, for ahanson. for all of us at nbc news. thanks for joining us. >>> good morning from new york, i'm chris hayes, talking about new developments incillin d syl >> rick perry said he does not think romney's religion is a cult. >>> we are going to start with the national explosion of "occupy wall street" movement. on september 16th, a few hundred people came to a tiny square in downtown manhattan with a promise to occupy wall street. we sent a producer and got mostly footage by a few dozen sleeping bags. by last week, the ranks of those participating in the event had swelled to around 1,000. the movement spread to boston, los angeles, washington, d.c., sfrae san francisco and chicago. this past week, thousands of union members and allies and others came out to join with the occupiers and the movement or protest or happening or whatever the heck it is has now spread to over 60 cities in the country, from seattle, to memphis to wichita, kansas. if not the whole world, at least the whole country is watching. they are planning an

disillusionment when the unfairness of the system is all around us. that's why people have been showing up in downtown manhattan. it is why they want to watch about it on the tv. in terms of what they are actually doing down there and the quests for demands or what they actually want, i think it is more helpful to think about what's going on with occupy wall street in this way. successful social movements innovate. they create new kinds of politics. this he roo he form what we think politics look like. consider this. not taking the bus is not a political act until someone makes it a political act in montgomery. burning a bra is a completely indecipherable bizarre thing to do in 1890 but by 1965 or 1970, it has a very specific and pointed meaning. even the simple act of getting married, the most mundane, private action two people can take on, has a profound and radical political meaning when those two people are of the same sex. none of these things were political acts until new movements made them into political acts. we spent a lot of time talking about steve jobs and we will talk about him

punching a person, and the unwarranted use of force, and i'm not talking about the fact that cops my react ang rrily because they ha been provoked. >> and it's difficult to do the crowd management and a responsible police officer, and we have not just rogue police officers on the force that may be behaving this way, but a real expectation from the leadership of certainly not just the new york city police force, but we are dealing with entintervention new orleans, and i have gotten a little bit of of push back from pushing back. i asked about it yesterday morning on the show, but then was watching. i am a professor and i had to think about this in context, and i was reading the back "race rebels," and it was actually very useful thinking about occupying space sometimes without the kind of goals that i was asking for yesterday. i kept saying i need an agenda and policy items, and then i was reminding myself that sometimes that comes later and part of what democracy, democratic action with a little d is, is that public space belongs in the public, and it should not be policed in the way
